The event will be held from 5:30-7:00 p.m. on Monday, November 27th at Founder’s Park on Campbell Station Road, near the Farragut branch of the Knox County Library. With the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen in attendance, and entertainment by area performers, this family friendly event will set the holiday mood. The highlight of the evening will be when Mayor Ralph McGill and other Town officials welcome a very special guest dressed in a Red Suit. He will be asked to throw the switch on 30+ trees, garland pole wraps and other lighted decorations, featuring over 60,000 glistening bulbs throughout the park. Entertainment will be provided by the Concord Brass Quintet and Soloists from Farragut’s Angela Floyd Schools. Mrs. S. Claus and her elves will be there helping post letters to the North Pole!

Parking will be available across the street from the park, courtesy of Westgate Christian Fellowship. The Knoxville Sheriff’s Department will be on hand to assist those crossing Campbell Station Road.

Attendees can look forward to enjoying the holiday cheer with freshly baked cookies to be provided by Costco and other area businesses. Coffee and hot chocolate will be courtesy of First Watch Café. There will be lots of business handouts, too.

In addition to presenting sponsor TDS, other confirmed sponsors include: SouthEast Bank (platinum level); Costco (gold level); First Utility District, Bank Of America, First Watch, TN Bank, Josh Hemphill State Farm and others yet to be announced (community sponsor level).

Media sponsors are the farragutpress and myi105.3 WFIV.

The event will be held rain or shine.
